many thanks dear kind people, for all the congratulations. thank you from my boy too. you are the nicest people in the world. :)
i think so!
the 'sunny days shawlette' pattern is from nurturing fibres. it was a comforting knit, rows of stockinette stitch, the kind you don't think about, until...the long drive home from arizona and the chevron edging and i couldn't for the life of me memorize it, at the same time, my ipad was rapidly losing power, and i wasn't sure where the car charger was (my printer is out of ink, no paper pattern!) i could have stopped knitting and taken the time to write down the directions for the last seven rows, but instead i continued in a fine frenzy ('what i wouldn't do', love her music ;) trying to finish, while trying not to look at the numbers, dropping dropping dropping, ten percent, six, three...at one percent (ha!) i finished. sometimes my friend andee calls herself a dork (she's not). but i think this may be the dorkiest thing of all.
i added the graduation photo to demonstrate how the shawl looks to be in arizona state university colors! completely unintentional! the main color is from curious creek fibers, called omo in the spice market colorway. a blend of silk and merino, it's SO soft. the contrast is madeline tosh in alabaster.
